Germanfest & Oktoberfest in Muenster
Each year we celebrate our German heritage with a three-day festival on the last full weekend in April and with a weekend celebration in October.
Germanfest, in particular, attracts thousands who spend days eating mouthwatering German sausage, scrumptious apple strudel, hearty cheeses and homemade bread, cakes and pies.
Events include a 5k and 15k Germanfest Fun Run, a Metric Century Bicycle Rally, a Sausage and Rib Cook-Off, as well as entertainment for the whole family. Mimes, magicians, clowns, and storytellers, entertain children in the Karneval and Kinder Theater, while Mom and Dad delight in dancing, music, arts and crafts, a rock-climbing wall, folk dancing, and two stages with non-stop entertainment.
Harold & Jeannine Flusche, owners of the Muenster Antique Mall, in partnership with their children Janel, Mark, Michael, and Anne Flusche, run several booths at Germanfest, selling delicious meals that feature Muenster’s world-famous German sausage. Stop by the Wursthaus at Germanfest and tell us hello!
